Mary C. Roary, an instructor in the Metropolitan School of Professional Studies, was one of three faculty members from across the entire university to receive the university’s inaugural Part-Time Faculty Awards for Teaching Excellence.

Dr. Roary was the recipient selected from among the university’s professional schools.  President John Garvey presented her with the award on February 5.

Dr. Roary, a program director at the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute of Nursing Research, is a knowledgeable and motivated public health epidemiologist who has experience in infectious and chronic diseases, with a focus on research methodology, biostatistics, public health advising, business and policy. At Metro, she wows our undergrads in courses like this semester’s Public Policy & Human Services.

“We are blessed to have Mary among our faculty members, and I am so pleased that the university has recognized her contributions,” said Dr. Vincent Kiernan, dean of the Metropolitan School. “She combines enormous energy as a teacher with deep scholarly expertise. The result is a consistently stellar experience for all her students.”
